Hello writer bees!
The lovely folks at QueryLetter.com told me about this awesome writing competition coming up, and I wanted to share it with you. Not your ordinary contest, they want book blurbs of non-existent novels. Sounds like a fun challenge. Here’s more on what their looking for.
Write and submit a back cover blurb of 100 words or fewer that sets the stage for a novel, establishes the characters, and raises the stakes in a way that makes readers want to find out more.
The top prize is $500. In the midst of the apocalypse, $500 can go a long way. Deadline is September 15, so hurry and submit your entry soon. Read more about the contest and it’s rules right here.
Aside from this competition, this site has some awesome posts about query letters and manuscript advice for aspiring authors. I recommend checking out their blog.
And for those entering the contest, best of luck!
Stay safe and keep writing, writer bees.
